non-coeliac gluten sensitivity: from geri on 2008-03-03

Hi1

I've just had the biopsies for suspected coeliac--blood tests were negative. My consultant thinks it won't be coeliac as i don't have the classic symptoms but he thinks it's an intolerance to wheat. Can you tell me it an intolerance is treated with a gluten -free diet. many thanks

Yes, an intolerance to wheat should be treated in exactly the same way as the coeliac condition with a completely gluten-free and wheat-free diet
